THESE FOUR SPORTS BRAS TAKE THE JIGGLE OUT OF YOUR WORKOUTS

Jiggling is good when it comes to Jell-O, but not when it comes to your breasts during a workout. We turned to a few of Buckhead’s activewear aces to scope out sports bra options that will provide the support you need during sweat sessions ranging from hiking to high-intensity interval training. Read on to learn their picks.

Patagonia Women’s Active Compression Bra ($55)
RECOMMENDED FOR: HIKING

Highlights: Shut-down cups for compression, ribbed bra band at torso for comfort and cutout racerback for ventilation

Why Try: “I love this sports bra for hiking in the hot and humid weather that we have here in Atlanta because the fabric dries quickly,” says Leigh Bost, manager at Patagonia Atlanta. “I think we can all agree that a long hike in a wet sports bra is no fun.”

Rigby & Peller PrimaDonna Sport The Sweater ($109)
RECOMMENDED FOR: HIGH-INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING

Highlights: Convertible straps for racerback tops, made of soft jersey fabric and a good choice for larger cup sizes

Why Try: “This style is made with fabric designed to keep you cool and dry, and comes by the cup size, which offers comfort and support without compression,” says Rigby & Peller’s Candice Smith, chief lingerie stylist based out of the Atlanta boutique. “But the most important feature of this style is that it’s designed for ultimate bounce control, which is what a lot of women don’t find in typical sport bras, and which is a necessity during a high-intensity interval-training class.”

Lululemon Enlite Bra ($98)
RECOMMENDED FOR: RUNNING

Highlights: Wide hook-and-eye closures for easy removal and built-in cups engineered to soften bounce

Why Try: “Our Enlite Bra encapsulates each breast entirely from the root and at all sides, and in combination with our Ultralu fabric and strap design, works to soften the bounce to a comfortable movement that’s in harmony with the body,” says Alexandra Plante, Lululemon Athletica’s innovation product manager and designer of the bra. “Plus, the combination cross-back and vertical straps aid in providing optimum movement management and eliminate the uncomfortable feeling of straps cutting into your trap muscles during a workout like running.”
